Erlinda is 55 years old and has a child. She is raising hogs to acquire an income. She had been in her business for over 10 years now. She usually gains PHP 2,000 for each hog sold. Now, she hopes to keep making her sales profitable and she is asking for a loan of PHP 12,000 to invest in her business. She will buy feed and vaccines for her hogs. This will help maintain good nutrition for the hogs and she can sell them at a profit upon maturity.
